Sandi Glowe is a 23 year-old songwriter and guitarist from Rome, based in Manchester.
Her classical background and love for psychology, philosophy and art has gone on to define her poetic and metaphoric style of writing, along with her insightful guitar melodies and a more recent electro-synth influence.
She started gigging in 2017 and campaigned against social media's privacy and mental health issues by not having a social media presence for more than 2 years. She is now back on Instagram to keep an open mind and connect with a wider audience.
Sandi has played in Manchester venues such as Soup Kitchen, Night and Day, The Deaf Institute, Gorilla, The Castle Hotel, Gullivers, Night People, The Peer Hat and is looking forward to go back playing live once it will be possible again.
A song at first inspired by Lindsay Mile's TedTalk on plastic pollution, now my own words remind me of the challenging times we are facing right now.
This song is about greed for power, about leaving damage behind, about not wasting our days and our resources away and do something meaningful.
It's crazy how our idea of the world changes so fast.
Last summer, I picked my guitar and, so saddened by all the news about climate change, so full of pain for the dying wildlife, I wrote this song in less than ten minutes.
These days, I am full of sadness, fear, conflicting emotions and empathy for my home country (Italy), the country I live in (UK) and the whole world.
Until weeks ago, we looked at the Earth as something ELSE that we needed to protect after the damage done. Now we must realise how actually we are all ONE.
To take care of nature means to take care of ourselves because we are all connected.
